The Center for Venture Capital and Private Equity Finance at the University of Michigan Ross School of Business will co-host the inaugural VC University Live program in conjunction with this year’s Midwest Growth Capital Symposium in Ann Arbor.

VC University, which launched in January, includes both an online certification program in venture finance and two live events at emerging venture ecosystems across the nation—the first of which kicks off May 15 at the 39th annual Midwest Growth Capital Symposium.

The Center for Venture Capital partnered with the University of California, Berkeley, through its Startup@Berkeley Law and the National Venture Capital Association.

“This joint event reflects the realization that the entire venture capital business—in tandem with the technological-innovation and business-model innovation process—has spread across the country and is no longer limited to just the East and West coasts,” said David Brophy, U-M professor of finance, director of the CVP and founder of the MGCS. The CVP is part of the Zell Lurie Institute for Entrepreneurial Studies at U-M.
